New tour routes celebrate food and drink producers as Celticos show visitors the delights of the Welsh table

Celticos tours have launched their 2019-20 programme and this year’s eye-catching development is a tour based on Welsh food and drink.

This private tour company, based in Felinheli, near Caernarfon, aims to go beyond the standardised tour format to offer a much more involving experience for visitors. They are taking advantage of the growing interest in artisan products and authentic experiences to offer tours which enable visitors to see how and where our food and drink are produced and to experience the tastes. 

Wales is justly famous for the quality, variety and freshness of its food and drink as wells as its strikingly beautiful natural environment. These tours aim to bring these elements together and guests will be able to tour the region with opportunities to visit farms, distilleries, vineyards and even a salt cote. 

Celticos have worked in partnership with some of the exciting new ventures in North Wales to develop the tours. Aber Falls Whisky Distillery is one such: leading the field in creating new products based on traditional skills and using regionally sourced ingredients, in a location which is steeped in history. It is North Wales’ first whisky distillery in over 100 years and only one of only four in Wales.

James Wright, MD of Aber Falls, is a keen supporter of the tour developments: “We’re really pleased to be working with Celticos as we expand our range of gins and liqueurs, and move towards our next milestone: the launch of our whisky in 2020. We want to share the journey with our visitors from far and wide, who now, more than ever, want so much more from a food and drink experience than simply buying off a shelf. They want authenticity, quality, heritage and involvement of all the senses, and that’s what we can provide.”

As with all Celticos tours, guests will also be able to get a great all-around experience by travelling around this beautiful region with its mountains and lakes, craggy coasts and mighty castles.
